A woman in her mid 20s was seriously injured late Monday night after crashing her car into a utility pole on Route 44 by the Avon Police Department, police said.
Police and fire officials responded at 10:55 p.m. Monday and the Avon Volunteer Fire Department extricated the woman from the car, officials said. She was then air lifted by Life Star.
As of 5 a.m. Tuesday morning, the woman was in life-threatening, but stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit at an area hospital, according to police.
